Georgia College is requiring every member of their first year class to complete four online training modules before arriving on campus. The programs are AlcoholEdu, Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates, Kognito- conversations that save lives, and Hazing Prevention 101.
AlcoholEdu is a non-opinionated, science-based course taken by hundreds of thousands of students each year. Whether or not you drink, AlcoholEdu empowers students to make well-informed decisions and provides some simple strategies to help keep you and your friends safe. We also promote student health and safety through the use of Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates, a program that educates students about the elements of healthy relationships, the importance of sexual consent, and the role of bystanders in creating safe, healthy communities.
Kognito is an online interactive role playing scenario that allows users to interact with an avatar to have conversations regarding mental health and how to help someone having a mental health challenge. Hazing Prevention 101 is a module that talks discusses what hazing is and how dangerous it is for students and for our campus, how to identify it, and how to report it.
We feel all of these programs will provide a solid foundation to our new students on how to make healthier choices and how to help someone else when they need assistance.
All four of these programs are open now for incoming freshman.
All first-year, incoming Georgia College freshmen for the Fall 2022 semester must complete Part 1 of AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates, and Hazing Prevention 101 by August 12th, 2022.
Since Kognito was delayed in opening, students have until August 26th, 2022 to complete this program. It is recommended to complete it before coming to campus if possible.
Emails will be sent to GC student's bobcat accounts and will have all of the log on details. The programs can be accessed through GC Unify. After completion of Part 1 for AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention, approximately 45 days later, you will receive an automated email indicating that it is time for you to complete Part 2 of AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates and the final survey.
You must complete Part 2 of AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates by October 7th, 2022.
Completion of the full courses is a requirement of your First-Year Academic Seminar. You will have to complete each of the courses with a passing grade on the exam to receive a passing grade in your seminar class.
